Ajisen Ramen (Parksons)

Reviewed By Lars B - Yantai

I have been here several times and am mostly happy with the quality of the food, but compared with a local Chinese noodle joint, it's not good value for money. There are other choices besides noodles, but the servings, although quite tasty, are rather stingy! The restaurant is clean and comfortable with no smoking and the service is friendly, but slow. You may have to serve your own complementary Barley tea before a waiter notices you need a refill...Not too bad overall.

Please check the official website to see the branch.

Considering their love of chicken you'd hope that KFC would be good in China. You'd be wrong - the service is typically poor, often with long queuing times and people pushing and shoving. The food itself is expensive and usually disappointing, not very tasty but by Chinese standards is probably OK.

We discovered this place accidently -- it is on a side street halfway between the Yantai University and downtown, but it was excellent. The manager spoke excellent English and the western food was real western food.Thanks for your kindly review and visit to Jackie's Yantai, really hope to see you guys soon & best wishes to you from all staff at Jackie's.

Amazing food and drinks. If it's not too busy, they usually put a basketball game on one of the TVs for me to watch. Burgers are great, but my favorite is the grilled pork chops with mashed potatoes. Chicken wraps are good as well(and cheap) but if you're like me and not a fan of spicy food, you can get it not spicy....

The food is very good and boasts many local dishes, especially seafood. The portions are gigantic, so be careful not to order too many, otherwise you'll end up wasting a lot. They have private rooms if you like to have your own space.

It is located on the Promenade, so you have a good view of the ocean (if there is not too much smog). It is relatively small. Food is decent. You are not able to pay with Mastercard.

Le Petit Paris - French Restaurant

Reviewed By RAH4 - Atlanta

There just isn't anything good to say about this place. The prices are ridiculous for the quality and small portions. The repeatedly told us they didn't have wine so we had to physically show them. Wine everywhere but no wine list. It was lunch and we just wanted 2 glasses of wine. They quoted us one price and when delivered the wine to the table they increased the the price. Western premium I guess. We had some sort of salmon salad with almost no salmon and horrible greens and a terrible dressing. No idea what it was. Lunch was 500 RMB and neither of us ate. We pretty much drank the two glasses of wine and planned an early dinner. My suggestion would be to go to the seafood buffet at the Golden Gulf Hotel or Druids.

友人の勧めで行ってみた豆腐料理店は当たりでした。日本の感覚より少し固い豆腐ですが、新鮮で美味しい豆腐は日本人の口に合い、価格もリーズナブルで素晴らしいお店でした。
